Clubs are wearing throwback uniforms this year in selected Legacy Games to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the American Football League, with Canton's preseason opener the first exhibition. A lone red Buffalo stood proudly on the Bills' helmets. The Titans were dressed like their ancestors, the Houston Oilers, complete with derricks. Referees were on patrol in orange-striped jerseys.

Riddell Classic RK Pro Line Throwback Helmets
A classic step back in time! The classic shape of the RK's slightly flared shell and handsome metal rivets are complemented by the attachment of an original Riddell two bar facemask.

Real leather jaw pads, gray toned strap and identical front style labeling makes this helmet indistinguishable from the original. Do not settle for a substitute. Demand the real thing! If a helmet on this page is a Riddell RK it will include "Riddell" in the title of that item.

Let me explain what this post is about. Once upon a time, quite a few offensive line and defensive liners in football wore a facemask that had a vertical bar going through the center. However, over past some years, those model facemasks seem to have gone the way of the one-bar facemask. The only person I know wearing such a facemask now is Taylor Boggs of the Arizona Cardinals, and there was one guy on the Saskatchewan Roughriders whose name escapes me that wore such a mask.
